Analyses of clonality and persistence in multilocus genotypes from Colombian Pacific region. A) Distribution of persistence times in the whole dataset analyzed (325 samples in 136 MLGs). B) Fifteen P. falciparum MLGs from Colombian Pacific coast revealed clones from different locations at same MLG and clonal persistence > eight years. C) Probability of sampling parasites from the same MLG in each of the four provinces in the Colombian Pacific region and overall probability. The first five intervals of days represent days of follow up during therapeutic efficacy studies with antimalarial drugs.
